Decoration.s are always very appropriate during Christ
mas. Although this is a true statement, even a beautiful spruce
or cedar can easily be over-decorated, detracting from its ap
pearance instead of adding to it. Just so with our campus
grounds — even they are made very unattractive by our failure
to use the trash cans which are made just for this purpose.
Shrubbery, trees, flowers^ grass, and buildings furnish enough
decoration; no extra trimmings in the form of old wadded-up
papers, drug store cups, and paper bags are needed.
I feel sure that our failure to obey the simple rules of
neatness for our grounds is to a large extent due to careless
ness on our part, because it is always somewhat easy and tempt
ing to throw down a piece of paper — even though it is only
a very small one — wherever we may be. But if every student
does this, the campus of Salem College will soon turn into a
junk yard, and what could be more irritating?
Let’s all observe “Clean Up Week” each and every day
and strive to make our campus very tidy and attractive.
DAY STUDENTS AND
We are all very grateful. I’m sure, for the many gifts
and donations that made possible the renovation of our beloved
Memorial Hall and the wonderful organ this summer; but some
of us don’t show our appreciation because we don’t go to
chapel frequently enough, especially we day students. Even
if we, don’t have a nine o’clock class any morning, we
should go to chapel at least one morning out of the weeli.
After all, we do need something to start the day right; so why
not go to chapel and hear a verse of scripture, a prayer, and
a hymn? I am sure, too, that the chapel committee has some
interesting programs in store for us.
Also all the announcements are made in chapel and if
we aren’t present to hear them, we miss many of the activities
of the whole year. Chapel is really a vital part of college
So let’s all go to chapel at least one morning, out of the
week, even if it does mean getting up a half hour earlier in
order to get here on time. It’s worth it.
If you didn’t see the movie be
cause you’re waiting for the atage
production, read the “Golden Boy”
in the “Best Plays of 1937-38.”
THE LIBRARY NOW HAS:
“North of the Danube” by
This is an account of Caldwell’s
travels in Czechoslovakia in the
summer of 1938. Politics are not
emphasized. The author is interest
ed in the people, their customs, their
attitude toward life and death and
the threatened loss of liberty. There
are 64 fine photographs taken by
Margaret BourkeWhite which com
plement the text.
‘ ‘ Inside Asia” by John Gunther.
The author of “Inside Europe”
writes a similar study of Asia. It is
the sole comprehensive treatment of
the political struggles and of the
drive for national emancipation of
well over one-half the population of
the world. Personality sketches,
anecdotes, bits of local color and
jokes enliven this account and make
“Insidq Asia” delightful reading.
“Abe Lincoln in Illinois” by
Robert E. Sherwood.
This has been called the best
play about Lincoln ever written.
There are, in the Library, several
indexes to books which will be use

get through the Card Catalogue. In
fact, all these indexes supplement
the catalogue and should be consult

A GIRL’S HOOD
I love a prayer-book.
I love a thorn-tree
That blows in the grass
As white as can be.
I love an old house
Set down in the sun
And the windy old roads
That thereabout run.
I love blue, thin frocks;
Green stones, one and all,
A sky full of stars,
A rose at the fall.
A lover I love.
Oh, had I but one,
I would give him all those, *
Myself, and the sun. ^
